. what struck me yesterday with john boehner he was saying as we approach the fiscal cliff, boehner was saying yesterday that the bottom line for republicans after this election is the same as it's been for 22 years. that is, that any kind of income tax hike, especially for the wealthy, is off the table for them. do you have a sense of what the white house is thinking is on the table? we approach january 1st. is it that they are really eager mainly to strike a grand bargain they can sell as a major bipartisan achievement? is the idea of fighting past january 1st if necessary to get rid of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy americans more of a priority for them? >> no. i think they want a deal if they can get it. you're right to listen closely to john boehner, because what he had is he'll accept some revenues in the context of tax reform, a big, wonderful, fuzzy nebulous idea. what he won't expect initially is a change in the rates. of course, that's what it's about. it's about the rates for the highest income earners. and that's where john boehner is refusing to start out in the nego

to what the president said today and what speaker john boehner said last week. listen to this. >> you've said that the wealthiest must pay more. would closing loopholes instead of raising rates for them sty y satisfy you? >> i think there are loopholes that should be closed and we should look at how we can make the process of deductions, the filing process easier, simpler, but when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. >> well, it feels like a dÉjÀ vu all over again. somebody is going to have to blink or we go over the fiscal cliff. my next guest knows all about fiscal cliff uncertainty and its effect on the individual investor. walter bettinger is ceo of charles schwab. the market certainly feels pessimistic. we are looking at another 200-point decline today. the market is down 5% since the president was re-elected. what are you hearing from clients? >> clients are really concerned. there is pessimism among investors. there's grea
